I'd be interested in hearing what the power consumption is of the two designs, the dedicated hardware and the PSoC. I was intrigued by the PSoC concept years ago (PSoC 2) and tried to integrate them into products I was designing at the time. One large factor which ruled them out at the time was the massive power consumption relative to a traditional design. I would imagine that has improved and would be interested in some current (no pun intended) numbers.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
